IMG Cho Oyu team leader Mike Hamill reports by sat phone from Cho Oyu Base Camp that the team is doing well and the base camp is looking good after the Sherpas went ahead and got it established. After travelling halfway around the world the team is all looking forward to spending a few days at BC relaxing, acclimatizing, and getting organized.
Mike says that it rained last night and today it is clear, with fresh snow on the hills above BC. They are doing an acclimatization hike today. Tomorrow the yak drivers will start hauling loads up to ABC with the Sherpas so that camp will be all ready to go in a few days when the climbers move up. The only other climbers currently on Cho Oyu are a large Chinese expedition.
So far so good!
